congressman ron barber. he won a special election to fill her seat after she stepped down. >> i turned to mr. loughner and said i hold no hatred for you, but i am very, very angry and sick at heart about what you did and the hurt you have imposed on all of us. i told him that he must now live with this burden, and will never see the outside of a prison again. >> loughner was sentenced to serve the rest of his life in prison without the possibility of parole. >>> a prominent texas attorney, facing charges of laundering more than $600 million for a mexican drug cartel. he is a former board member for the el paso symphony orchestra. what do we know about this del gado person? >> as you said, he was very active in his community, donated money, also started his own scholarship fund for the advancement of latino students who want to major in public policy and administration. and now, you know, we hear that there is another side. we hear he is a really nice guy. but perhaps the allegations are that he has laundered $600 million for a drug cartel. >> well, his lawyer, obviously, says he is innocent.
